The speculations were right on target, as within an hour of MIBR confirming Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles exit from the team, they went ahead and announced Ignacio “meyern” Meyer as his replacement.
It has been a hell of a year for MIBR who is currently ranked 11th on the global rankings. Meyern is the fourth player that the team has acquired this year, along with the transfer and trade of a few other players, making it a very chaotic year for them, with less uniformity in the playing squad.
With Meyern set to play for MIBR, he is the youngest player in their squad currently. The 17-year-old rifler has shown great potential as an entry fragger while being equally proficient with an AWP as well.
He might not have proper experience playing with top-tier teams but has played for known organizations like Isurus Gaming and Sharks Esports. The Argentinian has played at big tournaments, representing Isurus at DreamHack Masters Dallas 2019, and going on to play at ECS Season 8 Finals and ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals with the Sharks. So, when it comes to facing the crowd and feeling the nerves, the youngster has it covered.
The roster shuffle comes just before the team is set to play at CS_Summit 5 tonight in Los Angeles. The line-up might not have gotten a lot of time to practise together, but this can be a good bonding experience for them.
The young gun has great potential, we just have to wait and see if MIBR is able to harness his abilities in a fruitful manner and turn him into a better player or not.
